Germany provides a monthly allowance of '85 to 251 euros per child per month' to everyone who has had a child in their country and settled in Turkey.
Turkish mothers who gave birth to children in Germany or Turkish fathers who have children will be able to receive a pension due to their 'child-rearing period', even if they return to Turkey.
While Turkey was talking about a '$500 minimum wage' before the election, Germany is obliging families who had children in their country and then settled in Turkey to a salary. The average salary will be between 500 and 600 euros.
THE ISSUE THAT NO ONE REALIZES
SözcüAccording to the news, monthly bonding rates were renewed in Germany on July 1, 2022. Accordingly, a couple or a spouse (especially a mother) who lived in Germany, had a child there and then returned to Turkey will be able to receive a pension for each child if they apply to the pension fund with a form.
The system, which will be re-evaluated on July 1, 2023, will work as follows;
COMMON RIGHTS OF MOTHER AND FATHER
For each child born in Germany, points are added to the pension system. For example, one month of child-rearing time is calculated as 0,0833. This brings 1 point pay point in a year. Child-rearing periods are calculated up to the age of 10. As a result, for each child born before January 1, 1992, parents' retirement accounts receive up to 2.5 years of child-raising credit. After 92, the time triples.
HOW MUCH PER CHILD?
The calculation is made by the institution, not the citizen. For each child born after 1992, it is treated as if 3 years of premium has been paid to the parents' retirement system. So, if a Turkish mother gave birth to 1992 children in Germany after 4, it looks like she has worked for 12 years. 1992 euros are deposited for each child born before 85, 1992 euros for the first child born after 171, and 251 euros for the second child. This means a salary of at least 422 euros. If all three children are born after 1992, their pension exceeds 600 euros. Because, it is treated as if 92 months of premium has been paid for each child born after 36.
WHEN CAN I APPLY?
Expats who have settled in Turkey must apply to the pension fund (Rentenversicherung) where they are registered in Germany by filling out the form called V0800 Form. In this application, a 10-year retroactive 'Child-raising pension share' can also be requested. The application is made when retiring or reaching retirement age in Turkey.
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET THE MONEY?
Birth certificates of the children must also be sent along with the application form. It is not necessary to have worked in Germany to receive a pension due to child-rearing periods. As parents, you deserve it. Fathers can also receive this money. Only then the mother's approval is required. Likewise, in order for the mother to receive this money in full, the father must give his approval. If the father does not approve, the mother can only get half.
WHERE WILL THE MONEY BE SENT?
For those who apply for child-raising retirement from Turkey, their money is sent from there to a bank account that will be notified through SSI. If the person came to Germany and resettled, it is sent to his account there. In order for the father to receive this salary, the mother's permission is required. If the mother cannot give permission, it is necessary to explain the special situation.
WHO ELSE BENEFITS FROM THIS RIGHT?
Mother and father can also distribute child-rearing time among themselves. For example, the father who has 2 years of missing period for full pension receives 2 years, and if he has the right to 12 years, the mother receives 10 years. Thus, the mother is given the equivalent amount for 10 years. In addition to biological parents, other people can also receive child-raising allowance. Adoptive foster parents consist of grandparents or relatives who live in the same house with the child and prove that they are "foster parents" to him.
